5K Run/Walk

The 5K will begin following the completion of the 100 yard dash.  The course is certified by the USATF.  Strollers and dogs are welcome.  Medals will be awarded to the top two female and male finishers 14 and younger and the top two female and male finishers 15 and older.


The safety of our runners and the success of the event depend upon volunteers.  Volunteering out on the course is also a great way to see and cheer on the runners.  As a thank you, all volunteers will receive a complimentary long sleeve Sport-Tek t-shirt and a cup of coffee to help wake you up thanks to Petty & Dragstrem Orthodontics.  Click HERE to volunteer.  We greatly appreciate your time commitment!

If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary – the world really would be a better place.  And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.
